Multitude Monday….

After a sleepless Sunday night and a Monday morning of four very distracted students, I reflect on quotes that have carried me through the past few days…..

  • Sorrows come to stretch out spaces in the heart for joy. ~ Streams in the Desert, January 18
  • The moment we receive anything from the Lord worth fighting for, the Devil comes seeking to destroy us. ~ Streams in the Desert, January 21
  • We often wish that God would do some great thing in the world, and we look far and wide for just the right places and people.  We must not forget to ask the Lord to make use of us, and to believe that our home might become the central point from which streams of blessing would flow forth. ~ C.H. Spurgeon

I reflect, and I give thanks. The reflection centers me, draws me back to truth. The thanks-giving takes my tired eyes off me and allows me to look up to the One who gives all gifts. He is good.

  1. I love that Charles Spurgeon quote! Jim used that yesterday in his sermon right? It’s funny how God reminds us multiple times, my online devotion from David Jeremiah this morning was about hospitality and “house evangelism” Adam and I want that for our house!

  2. Yes, it is from Jim’s sermon notes. I loved it…and I love how God uses it to minister to us in different ways. You view it through the lens of hospitality; I view it through the lens of what Matt is experiencing and what God may have in store for our future and how it all begins here at home. Our God is so amazing in His attention to our individual hearts!
